A dry ice explosion happened at LAX Sunday evening in the airport's men's room. There were no reports of injuries or damage, LA Times reports Oct. 14. The FBI is on the case, investigating the dry ice bomb and how it got there.
According to the report, the dry ice explosion was created with a bottle filled with dry ice. It happened around 7 p.m. in a restroom at Terminal 2, a busy terminal with multiple international and domestic airlines.
An LAX employee told officials that he heard an explosion inside the men's room. When he went in to investigate, he found a 20-ounce plastic bottle with dry ice.
Operations were temporarily stopped after the dry ice explosion Sunday at LAX. Flights were delayed until 8:45 p.m. while the Los Angeles Police Department bomb squad looked into the incident. Four flights were affected by the dry ice bomb investigation.
The FAA reports that no flights were delayed Monday because of the explosion.
Another dry ice explosion incident happened in May in Anaheim at Disneyland. A water bottle also contained dry ice that was place in a garbage can near Toontown. There were no injuries in that instance, either.
It seems that a bizarre string of dry ice bombs are making news. It's been quite a year explosions in general that have made news headlines.
